"The Democrats seem to be basically nicer people, but they have demonstrated time and time again that they have the management skills of celery. They're the kind of people who'd stop to help you change a flat, but would somehow manage to set your car on fire. I would be reluctant to entrust them with a Cuisinart, let alone the economy. The Republicans, on the other hand, would know how to fix your tire, but they wouldn't bother to stop because they'd want to be on time for Ugly Pants Night at the country club."

I love Dave Barry

    Though Dave Barry is most often funny, 5 stars for humor, thumbs down for accuracy and spreading an incorrect stereotype. By way of example: more conservatives and Republicans show up for hurricane relief while liberals and Democrats expect government to take care of the problem; and, its been my experience that the Democrats and Republicans equally have nice people.

    Pretty good stuff. Makes 'em sound like one and the same, at least as results are concerned.
     -- Waffler, Smith, Arkansas     
    Comparing Pelosi and Reed to celery is an insult to celery.
     -- jim k, austin     
    Not bad.

    That's right, jim. I actually like celery and it clearly has some nutritional value. I do have a friend that refers to celery as "that vile weed." That much more accurately describes the venerable House majority and Senate leaders. I'm with Mike on the quote, however. Many more 'Pubbies actually want to jump in and help on their own than habitual nanny staters.

    Pretty good... humorous for liberals and conservatives alike.

    yeah, not so much anymore in the nice dept. and this Repub, an old lady tapping 80 on the shoulder can still change a flat...but mostly his humor is good...he just didn't make the laughter bubble with this one.
